Also, no way in hell Lisbon is a second world city. You're absolutely out of your mind.
You do know that this study was invalidated because it conveniently did not include research subsidies for the rest of Canada but included them for Quebec. If you use the same basis for both set of universities, you get a result that universities in Qc are massively underfunded compared to the ROC. Basically, the author wanted to prove a point and decided to fudge the numbers in order to do so. This is intellectual dishonesty at its finest.

This also does not take into account the fact that universities in the rest of Canada are given a lot more donations from the local population than in Quebec. This is something that should not surprise anyone considering the high income tax in Qc.
